Did you know Pizza did not originate in Italy? It actually was first introduced by the Greeks. My favorite Pizza is the Margherita Pizza-esp at CIBO in Phoenix (5th ave and Filmore). Here's a lil history about it for you. I love Pizza and good Beer!
"To honor the queen who was so beloved by her subjects, Rafaelle (her personal chef) decided to make a very special pizza just for her. He baked a Pizza topped with tomatoes, Mozarella Cheese, and basil (to represent the colors of the Italian flag: Red, white, and green)." Taken from In Mamas Kitchen Blog
